In recent years, the Blue Oval has gone above and beyond to make sure their line of vehicles is outfitted with the best in safety technology and the 2016 Ford Taurus is no exception. If safety features are paramount to you and your loved ones, consider a used model for your next sedan.
Every 2016 Taurus comes with a host of safety features, including front-seat side airbags, full-length side-curtain airbags, a rearview camera, integrated blind-spot mirrors, and emergency telematics through paired smartphones. An Edmunds article explains that parents wary of loaning the car to their teen driver will enjoy the Ford MyKey feature, which allows you to set parameters for speed and stereo volume.
Upgrade to the Limited or SHO trim and you’ll be treated to a lane-departure warning and prevention system, frontal collision warning system, and a blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert. If the idea of parallel parking gives you heart palpitations, you’ll love the automated parallel parking system.
The Taurus hit several home runs in crash tests, receiving a five-star overall rating from the government, as well as five stars for side and frontal protection. It also received a “Good” rating (the top possible score) for side and roof strength, moderate-overlap frontal-offset, and rear impact tests from the very picky Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
